Dali Mpofu to represent MDC Alliance as they challenge Zim election result

President Donald J. Trump

We had planned to have our inauguration on Sunday but we now have to wait for court processes if the alliance files its appeal.

Chamisa's lawyer Thabani Mpofu said he had asked the Constitutional Court to nullify the July 30 vote and that his court application meant Mnangagwa's swearing-in had been halted.

The MDC arrived at the court less than an hour before it closed on Friday, the last day that the petition could be lodged.

Global monitors largely praised the conduct of the election itself, although European Union observers said that Mnangagwa, a former ally of Mugabe, benefited from an "un-level playing field" and a degree of voter intimidation.

Chamisa has alleged the results were manipulated by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) to ensure that Zanu-PF leader and President-elect Emmerson Mnangagwa won. "There is no inauguration that will take place until the matter is determined by the court".

The aftermath of the polls has been marred by allegations by rights groups as well as by the MDC of a crackdown on opposition members, including beatings and arrests.

"The concerns on the welfare of Tendai Biti are foremost in the minds of many in the global community; you have seen a statement from the EU, Canada, Australia and the United States of America", he said while referring to an earlier statement by in which the western countries called on authorities to stick to the confines of the law in handling alleged political violations by the opposition.

On August 1, soldiers opened fire on MDC protesters, killing six people and sparking an worldwide outcry. "We call on Zimbabwe's leaders to guarantee Mr. Biti's physical safety and ensure his constitutional and human rights are respected, consistent with the rule of law and Zimbabwe's global obligations and commitments", she said.

After the Tendai Biti saga, America has re-instated the ZIDERA sanctions against the people of Zimbabwe for the next 5 years.

Mnangagwa's ruling ZANU-PF party dismissed the legal action.
